assess whether the above figures represents the extent of skip use. It
seems likely that skip hire could also form part of
construction/maintenance projects however we are unable to provide this
level of detail. Figures for the amount spent on skip hire by facilities
or estates is also unavailable.

Council has not complied with the FOI Act in responding to your request,
you may ask for an internal review. If you wish to do so, please set out
the grounds of your appeal in writing to:

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you then
